    I think vettel needs to hush up and just race. He's in the thick of it in terms of publicity and he shouldn't attract anymore unwanted attention.

    Onto the bandwagon you go.
    Nope, I genuinely missed Ricciardo's call. The race was pretty dull so i wasn't paying full attention and Vettels radio message was almost instantly broadcast.
    But thanks for giving me the benefit of the doubt Hassan... Sheesh :|
    You don't have to be so unwilling to heed my opinion just because you don't like me.
    I'm the first to admit that Hamilton can be as much of a douche as Vettel, but that's why they're both at the top of their game. I could not care less what either of them do outside of the race environment

    Sorry, my bad. It's just that everyone I've spoken to that likes Hamilton has completely ignored that dani made the call too so I just assumed you did too.

    My bad, apologies. I've also had an ear full from hamilton supporters too recently so that's also why

    That'll do nicely.

    Pretty decent race, always something to watch, fantastic drive from Ricciardo, shame Max couldn't get onto the podium.

    Hammy now 1 point behind Vettel, a rather good weekend for him.

    No stress matey... I do feel for you. A lot of Hamilton fans (actually the vast majority) can be proper douches... A lot of them don't even know what F1 is.


    Didn't manage to catch the race today and I made the mistake of going of Facebook so it all got spoiled for me.
    How did Alonso get on this time?

    DNF of course.

    Honda need to disappear quickly.

    They do.
    Although part of me really hopes they can succeed. Like McLaren they have so much pedigree in F1 and if they leave now I don't think they'll ever make it back in (or try to)

    That wasn't a bad race for a change. Okay Ham was away up front and so the actual result for the win wasn't really anything special but the Seb and Max battle was fun to watch at times, as was following Bottas' charge from further down the pack. I was so wanting to see Ham do some donuts at the end when he did his thing to the fans but I guess the FIA are still gits about that sort of thing huh?

    Wish the other cars were battling up front to make the championship actually a fight but I guess with the seasonal changes that come in regularly this will likely not be something we will see until restrictions are universal or something.

    ALONSO FASTEST LAP BOIS THIS IS IT.
    Really happy that Ham gave the position back to Bottas, really glad about it.
    Ferrari was meh by almost ruining it for Kimi.
    Interviews were brilliant, Kimi being asked to say something in Finnish and replying: "they all undestand english"

    Overall not as boring a race as it could have been, it could have easily been memorable for being the worst race but having the top 4 so close to each other after 70 laps is always good entertainment.

    Did anyone see Toto Wolff's reaction to Hammy letting Bottas back into third? It was very over the top, you can read a lot into that reaction and whether he thought Hammy would do it or not

    Its going to be interesting if he loses the championship by 3 points or less...

    Such a shame that Ferrari don't seem to let Raikonnen race to his potential. It would be amazing if he and Bottas swapped teams this winter and Raikonned was allowed to drive properly.
    I was more impressed with Verstappen's behaviour (after the race) than I was with Hamiltons though.

    I finally saw what this was all about and I applaud Hamilton for excelling in this sportsmanship. He asked to be let pass to do something on the proviso that he would pass Raikonnen on which he never managed to do, and so kept to the gentleman's agreement that he entered with Bottas. If he loses the Championship by those points then fair enough but, I think he will look back and still believe he did the right thing should that happen.

    Spa this weekend!! Unlike many, I don't really have favourites. I just want to see some good racing with plenty of passes, some unfortunate technical issues and perhaps a mistake in the pit-lane to spice it all up.

    Between the races of this BTCC weekend I caught parts of the race and I have to say Hamilton and that Mercedes seem to act almost like one. That move on Vettel through Eau Rouge was epic! To carry that much speed and be that close to another car and make the pass partly unsighted was quite incredible. Apart from the start, the previously mentioned happening and the finish I didn't catch much else of it.

    Two bits of news:

    - Rumours are gaining traction that Porsche is looking to buy Red Bull's F1 team with the intention of keeping Horner/the team but supplying a works engine for Red Bull for the engine rule changes in 2021 onwards.

    - McLaren appear to be dropping Honda in favour of Renault power. It appears to be that Honda will be pushed out the McLaren deal and get into bed with Toro Rosso instead, so they'll remain in the sport.

    If the first rumour happens, how will that affect the second rumour? God knows. It all seems a bit complicated atm.

    Kicking Palmer out of the team in the process. I think that Gasly might get his seat instead, iirc

    It sounds as if Red Bull are going to announce they're splitting from Renault at the end of the year.....?

    Where does this leave them, I know they wanted Toro Rosso to go with Honda engines and give Honda time to make the engines work, but are they going to actually risk the senior Red Bull team on Honda engines too?

    The Renault engine hasn't been very reliable either but if reliability has fractured their relationship with Renault, how will they last with Honda?

    Are they going to try and make their own engine? Are they going to try and get a Mercedes or Ferrari engine? It's a bit confusing.

    Wow, this is a bit all over the place isn't it. Fun to watch as a neutral.

    Mercedes got very very lucky today. Good driving from Hamilton.

    Pretty interesting race, it lasted slightly too long though.

    FIA Lap one was a racing incident? Really? So far up Vettel's/Ferrari's backside it's unreal.

    Wow they came to the conclusion that it was just a racing incident? I never watched any of the race, was too busy watching the BTCC race weekend but I did see footage of the Ferrari sandwich and it's pretty obvious who was at fault.
